Sentados en corro
Merendábamos besos y porros
Y las horas pasaban de prisa
Entre el humo y la risa
Te morías por volver
Con la frente marchita cantaba Gardel
Y entre citas de Borges, Evita bailaba con Froid
Ya llovió, desde aquel chaparrón hasta hoy

Iba cada domingo
A tu puesto del rastro a comprarte
Carricoches de miga de pan, soldaditos de lata
Con agüita del mar andaluz quise yo enamorarte
Pero tú no querías más amor
Que el del Río de La Plata

Duró la tormenta hasta entrados los años 80
Luego el sol fue secando la ropa de la vieja Europa
No hay nostalgia peor
Que añorar lo que nunca jamás sucedió
Mándame una postal de San Telmo, adiós cuídate
Y sonó entre tu y yo el silbato del tren

Iba cada domingo
A tu puesto del rastro a comprarte
Monigotes de miga de pan, caballitos de lata
Con agüita del mar andaluz quise yo enamorarte
Pero tu no tenías otro amor
Que el del Río de La Plata

Aquellas banderas de la patria de la primavera
A decirme que existe el olvido esta noche han venido
Te sentaba tan bien esa boina calada al estilo del Che
Buenos Aires es como contabas, hoy fui a pasear
Y al llegar a la Plaza de Mayo me dio
Por llorar y me puse a gritar dónde estás

Y no volví más a tu puesto del rastro a comprarte
Corazones de miga de pan, sombreritos de lata
Y ya nadie me escribe diciendo no consigo olvidarte
Ojalá que estuvieras conmigo en el Río de La Plata
Y no volví más a tu puesto del rastro a comprarte
Carricoches de miga de pan, soldaditos de lata

    My Interpretation

    Pareja que se conoce en Europa y se enamoran pero ella regresa a su país, Argentina. Ninguno de los dos consiguen olvidarse y durante cierto tiempo mantienen el contacto. Él, pasado el tiempo y ya perdido el contacto (ya nadie me escribe diciendo "no consigo olvidarte"), se planta en el país de ella para buscarla pero no la encuentra ... Un "lo que pudo ser y no será" o como bien dice Sabina "No hay nostalgia peor que añorar lo que nunca jamás sucedió".

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.

There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
